Viz Media will be holding yet another Moonlight Party this coming Friday, May 8th 2015 starting at 6pm Pacific Time, 9pm Eastern Time. This Mini Moonlight Party will feature only two episodes, Sailor Moon R episodes 61 and 67, but will accompany the streaming release of the rest of Sailor Moon R part one on Hulu and Neon Alley. Though specific episode numbers are not given this should be the addition of episodes 61 through 68 of Sailor Moon R. Episodes 47 though 60 are already on Hulu though they are expected to be removed on June 7th, prior to Sailor Moon R part 1 being released on DVD and Blu-Ray.
Sailor Moon R episode 61, Usagi Devastated: Mamoru Declares a Break-Up, has Usagi heartbroken as Mamoru tells her it’s over. This breakup will last for a good part of the season! Sailor Moon R episode 67, The Beach, the Island and a Vacation: The Guardians’ Break, is the only episode never to be released on home video. It was not dubbed as part of DiC’s original English dub and was omitted from ADVision’s “uncut” DVD release of Sailor Moon R. It has Chibiusa befriending a plesiosaur because she didn’t want to eat fish.
This is a promotion for Sailor Moon R part 1 which will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on July 14th. Support the site by pre-ordering this set on Amazon using the link below. You can already purchase season 1 parts 1 and 2 which have already been released.

The two latest episodes of Sailor Moon R are now available on Hulu and Neon Alley. This week we have episodes 61 and 62 which continues the story of Chibiusa and the Black Moon Clan.
Episode 61, Usagi Devastated: Mamoru Declares a Break-Up, is a pretty sad episode. Now that Usagi and Mamoru have finally had their moment of happiness they are quickly torn apart. Mamoru is behaving strangely and decides to break it off with Usagi. Usagi is naturally confused by this sudden change in attitude, but when she learns that he is serious about this she is heartbroken. As Usagi breaks down crying in a phone booth we can really get a feeling for her pain. The Black Moon Clan then try to make her forget her trouble with makeup, which naturally doesn’t work.
Episode 61, A Guardian’s Friendship: Goodbye, Ami, has Ami leaving! When I first watched this episode back in the day I really had no idea how this series would play out so I didn’t know if Ami really would go or not! The episode also features new transformation items for the girls. Ami’s friends are not able to meet her at the airport because they’re busy fighting evil, but when she gets their gift and letter she realizes she can’t go. And how could she? Who would be able to just leave the country while evil is threatening the city and the world? Who would give up on such a sacred duty? Mamoru does! But that’s over 100 episodes away and it’s a bit more complicated than that.
